Amidst the on-going Iginla melodrama, Nick Kypreos reported last night that Miikka Kiprusoff has told Flames management he won't report to any other team if he's traded at the deadline. Kipper's NTC ran out last summer, but with only one season remaining on his current deal (at $1.5 million in real dollars) Kiprusoff can now play the "I'll just retire if you force me to do anything " card.

POST-GAME: Chelsea Daggered

Believe it or not, your Calgary Flames had already played this game before it started. Facing a team the night after they experienced a disappointing loss, and looking to make a statement.

Unlike when they faced the Dallas Stars in a similar situation, the Flames needed to have a game plan ready to go instead of just winging; that just never works out well for anyone on the team.

FGD: Sweet Home Chicago

The Calgary Flames hit the ice for their 31st game of the 2013 season tonight. They'll try to get the road monkey off their back as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks, and one way or the other, history will be made.

If the Flames win, it'd be their first victory in Chicago since March 16, 2008 (yes, five years) and push the Blackhawks to their first three-game losing skid of the year. If the Flames lose, it'll extend their road winless streak to ten games and bring them a step closer to their franchise record 1973 13-game road winless mark. And a game closer to formal playoff elimination, of course.

The puck drops at 6:30pm on Sportsnet 960 The Fan and Sportsnet West.

 As of writing this, the Flames are 14th in the West and six points out of the playoffs with just five games remaining before the trade deadline. Even if they win all five contests, which is unlikely, Calgary probably still won't be in a playoff spot by the time the bell rings on April 3rd.

Well the kids are all basically done their regular seasons, so we can take a look at their overall NHL equivalencies for 2012-13.

For those who have been following along all year, there are no major surprises here. A few guys started out on fire, but it really only boiled down to Johnny Hockey putting up a truly noteworthy number. Sven, Bill Arnold are only other guys who finished above the 30-point barrier.
